I just remember back to when Moronotti wrote off the White Sox during the first series of the season after Shingo had that horrendous game.

All the Dark Clouds have parted and all I see is sunshine at 1:09 am.

Complimentary? He just compared us to the 89 A's, the 99 Yankmees the 84 Tigers and the 1990 Reds as the best teams of the last 25 years and said we could play against any of them! Quite effusive!

You can probably add David Schoenfeld and Eric Neel to this list after this doozy tonight. Worst series of ESPN Era? (http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=second/guessing/2005/051026)

When all of these media guys start crying tomorrow about how it was a lousy series because the ratings were so low, they should all just go look in a mirror. Their bashing all season, their doubting what could be a good thing, told the public at large that there was no reason to watch these teams because they weren't the Red Sox, Yankees, Cubs, Dodgers, or Cardinals.

There were stories here, great stories, better stories than anything the Red Sox -Yankees could have provided and all the media did was whine about this team winning for months, even up till today.

If the media had paid attention you would have seen one of the most dominant seasons in baseball history. I'm sorry for the sportswriters since they were so busy whining that they missed it.

Your business is to promote and report on sports. Well do your job and promote what series you are given, not the one you wanted to have. Then maybe the ratings will actually improve the next time a team that doesn't fit your dream scenario makes it.

That was a compliment. he was stating that the AL Central was actually a better division than the AL East this season so the White Sox actually dominated the best division in the American League wire to wire.

This one is for every dork, idiot, nerd, jerk, doofus, ding dong, blogger,
full of themselves wannabe "writer" and Boob Costas who pronounced,
in their infinite wisdom, that the White Sox would never again win the
World Series because they were being punished eternally for what we
all did in 1919. At least they made it seem like we were all guilty of
throwing away the series. To the jerk on another site who said that
they would never win until they melted the statue of Charles Comiskey.
To paraphrase Edward G. Robinson: "where's your 'curse' now?"

White Sox fans have been around suffering every bit as much as Red Sox fans. Except that White Sox fans haven't enjoyed it as much.

Ugh, the one thing I agree with Brantley on. The most overblown story of this postseason. I'm happy the Astros didn't blame that after this game tonight and use it as a crutch.

Actually .... ESPN's page 2 pair wasn't all bad; sure Shoenfeld was a total tool, but Eric had some good stuff:




Eric: But I don't buy for a second that the beat-back-the-hounds-of-history thing is played out. That's tired, East Coast-bias talk is what that is. This is genuine redemption after wandering the desert for generations. It's every bit as legit as the Red Sox claim to our heartstrings. And maybe more so, because White Sox fans don't annoy us within an inch of our lives with self-pity, and White Sox players don't make us want to throw rocks through the screen by being so full of themselves and their mystique every time they go in front of a mike. Plus, this series has a rookie closer saving the first and the fourth, a Cy Young-caliber starter getting a W and a save, yet another great play from Juan Uribe to end the whole thing, a guy hitting .430 to win the MVP, contributions for the winning team from up and down the lineup, deliverance for Harold Baines, Tim Raines, Dick Allen, Bo Jackson, the great Frank Thomas, and the great, great Bill Veeck.

I wanted to check in today to do two things:

1) Congratulate the World Champs (sounds good to say that, doesn't it?)

2) To see if many White Sox fans still have a big chip on their shoulder, even having just won the Series. For heavens sake: YOU JUST WON THE WORLD SERIES!!! Enjoy what your team did.

Dear Media,

If I could post that iconic picture of Johnny Cash flipping the bird here and get away with it, I would. Unfortunately, you will all just have to picture it in your mind's eye this morning as you sit down at your keyboards to trash one of the best teams in the last 25 years. Enjoy your sour grapes and enjoy picking Cleveland to win the division next year--the Sox and their fans have gotten the real prize, and that's what matters.

Sincerely,
1951Campbell
